Enchanted Apothecary Giveaway!Enchanted ApothecaryLast month we had our first review and giveaway for some beautiful bar soaps by Enchanted Apothecary and today we are featuring some skin care items. The BIZ is smitten with this line because the products serve your body, mind, and soul. It is simply far more than a typical beauty product line. The artisan skin care arrives in a recycled kraft paper box wrapped with an eco-friendly onyx raffia ribbon  A clear quartz crystal adorns the box, a beautiful keepsake to treasure.

Enchanted Apothecary features cleansers, elixirs, and moisturizing creams for skin, as well as stunning bar soaps. The products are made in small batches and are 100% natural. What is truly unique to this line is that the products are not only infused with crystals, they also have an actual crystal inside. Every day life can throw off your balance and crystals help to heal and rebalance that energy.

Inside my Enchanted Apothecary box I found the three skin care items that the owner, Felicia, will be sending to our giveaway winner:  Clarity Cleansing Oil, Timeless Eye Cream, and Harmonia Facial Moisturizer.

Enchanted Apothecary Clarity Cleansersnowflake-obsidian

The Clarity Cleansing Oil with Snowflake Obsidian ($20.95) is a cleansing oil that is applied to dry skin. Just massage it in then wipe off with a warm washcloth. It removes all traces of makeup, dirt, and grime, leaving skin incredibly soft and smooth. The cleansing oil contains castor, grapeseed, and jojoba oils that attract dirt while also leaving skin moisturized. In addition, lavender and rosemary essential oils work with dandelion and plantain leaf to heal and soothe skin. The cleansing oil is infused with snowflake obsidian, which further calms and soothes the skin.

Enchanted Apothecary Timeless Eye Creamrose-quartz-crystal

The Timeless Eye Cream ($34.95) is a jar of thick, creamy goodness for the delicate undereye area. Ingredients include arnica flower, bilberry, white tea and nettle leaf, along with an infusion of rose quartz crystal. This elegant eye cream plumps up fine lines and wrinkles and keeps skin healthy and young looking. As with all jar skin care products, don’t use your fingers to scoop out the product.

Enchanted Apothecary Harmonia Facial Moisturizer

Enchanted Apothecary Harmonia Facial Moisturizer

clear-quartz-crystal

The Harmonia Facial Moisturizer ($38.95) is an excellent moisturizer for combination skin. It balances out the dry and oily areas with a blend of burdock root, green tea, rosemary and chamomile. It’s also infused with Clear Quartz Crystal, which helps protect skin and keep it balanced. My skin absolutely loves this creamy moisturizer! It leaves it soft, smooth, and glowing.  

Enchanted Apothecary also carries beautiful elixirs and another one of my favorites, the Cleansing Cream. You can find Enchanted Apothecary online at www.enchantedskincare.com and at select Whole Foods locations, as well as on Etsy.

KARYNG by Dr. Karyn Grossman makes our nights outstanding

karyng-logo

KARYNG Skincare by Dr. Karyn Grossman is the latest company that Beauty Info Zone has been introduced to; we want to further this introduction since the two products we were sent to test have been wonderful.

If you read Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, Vogue, MORE etc. you might have seen Dr. Grossman mentioned in articles, especially since she was named one of the five “hot derms”. Besides her dermatology business she’s also a top cosmetic surgeon with a long list of famous patients.

Her skincare was founded on her belief that inflammation is at the root of most skin problems so she developed products to address this issue.

Karyng’s active, high-performance ingredients target the key signs of aging: fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven pigmentation, inflammation, and dullness to help deliver a fresh, youthful appearance. Rich antioxidants combat inflammation and help repair and restructure skin. Every product in the line contains exclusive Pro-Verte Technology, a naturally-based proprietary complex designed to maximize anti-aging and anti-inflammatory results.

 

Karyng Restructuring Night CreamLISA USES RESTRUCTURING NIGHT CREAM ($75)

There is a lot to be excited about when it comes to this thick, creamy nighttime moisturizer. New to me are keratinocyte growth factors that actually increase the thickness of the skin. Your skin thins out as you age, which is one reason why dark undereye circles become so prominent, and why wrinkles start to develop. The results reported for this cream are pretty impressive: it reduces the appearance of deep and fine lines, increases collagen by 6.8% in 11 days, increases elastin by 190% to improve firmness and elasticity within 15 days, and evens skin tone and texture. That doesn’t even include the other benefits:

Double protection against oxidative stress from UV exposure and glycation
Boost DNA repair from UV-B induced damage
Provide 24 hour skin hydration decreasing dryness by 60%
Rebuild skin’s barrier to help protect 

Karyng Restructuring Night Cream
This is a shea butter and olive oil based moisturizer that I find definitely keeps my skin moist and soft. The other ingredients are excellent – lots of cutting edge stuff that hydrates, repairs, fights free radicals, protects skin from photo-aging, creates new epidermis, unplugs pores, and evens skin tone.

Karyng Restructuring Night CreamThe Karyng Restructuring Night Cream is one of those moisturizers that give immediate gratification in addition to all the long-term benefits. Rub a small amount on the back of one hand and wait a few minutes. Then feel the difference between that hand and your other one – it’s incredible. That effect lasts until you wash your hands and even then the treated hand is still noticeably softer. Of course, you put this moisturizer on your face at night after cleansing and toning, so it won’t be washed off. That means all those wonderful ingredients are busy for hours and hours, putting the ‘beauty’ in ‘beauty sleep’.

My only gripe? It’s jar packaging, so don’t be tempted to stick your fingers in there – use a scoop of some sort. And you’ve got to use the entire jar quickly or the ingredients lose their integrity and effectiveness. If you can vow to keep your hands out of the jar, keep the lid on tight in between uses, and faithfully use this every night, I think you will be extremely pleased with the results because this is a winning night cream.

MARCIA USES KARYNG REVITALIZING EYE CREAM ($70)

Karyng Revitalizing Eye Cream

Karyng Revitalizing Eye Cream

Unlike Lisa I have no gripes at all. Karyng packed their Revitalizing Eye Cream exactly how one should be packaged. The light green jar is opaque with a silver twist top. You reveal the pump when you need it and then twist back to seal. The efficacy of the ingredients is safe within.

One of the first things I noticed on the Revitalizing Eye Cream jar says this “90% Nature, 10% Science”. I thought that was an interesting way to show how the ingredients are the winners here. All Karyng products are formulated without parabens, petroleum, pesticides, propylene or butylene glycols, phthalates, BPA’s, PEG’s, TEA, DEA, GMO, glutens, or synthetic fragrances. They are vegan and not tested on animals.

The two problems I most want to work on with an eye cream are the puffiness I get under my eyes along with the dark circles that go hand in hand with them. Of course I want my fine lines to be hidden but that’s not my main goal. Revitalizing Eye Cream works on all of these in a light, easily absorbed cream. I notice a lightening effect under my eyes in the morning when I awake and to keep that going I use it when I’m putting on my skincare each day.

Karyng Revitalizing Eye Cream

Karyng Revitalizing Eye Cream

The ingredients are incredible and will keep me using this for some time to come.

Holoxyl TM – Tripeptide-5, and soy-rice peptides are clinically proven to reduce dark circles, puffiness and inflammation.

Eyeliss TM 3% – A combination of 3 natural and effective peptides that work together to eliminate all the causes of eye bags

Niacinamide – Also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, a potent cell-communicating ingredient that offers multiple benefits for aging skin.

The only thing better than having this opportunity to use these two products is if we could meet Dr. Karyn Grossman for a little extra help!

How does your city stack up in wrinkles? Count on RoC® to help improve your chances.

roc-wrinkles

This year RoC® conducted their 3rd annual Wrinkle Rating. It’s so interesting to find out where your area stands. In the top 10 is a city (#9) not too far from me that made it. While I’m not moving, I am counting on RoC® to keep my skin as wrinkle free as possible.

The top ten cities/metro areas include:

 

1. Philadelphia, PA 6. Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ
2. Denver-Aurora, CO 7. Washington, DC-Arlington-Alexandria, VA
3. Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA 8. New York, NY
4. Chicago-Naperville-Arlington Heights, IL 9. Warren, MI
5. Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, MN-WI 10. Edison, NJ

WRINKLE(S) IN THE FINDINGS

  • Big City Blues: Large metropolitan areas such as Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and New York City will continue to round out the top 10 most wrinkle-prone metro areas due to their extreme urban environments, including more congested commuting and lower air quality.
  • Thank You for Not Smoking: Smoking rates are predicted to approach zero in 35 of the 50 cities ranked, which will decrease overall rates of premature fine lines and wrinkles. However, Nashville, St. Louis and Kansas City are expected to retain smoking rates significantly higher than the rest of the country – leaving residents of these cities more at risk.
  • Heat Makes Waves: Higher temperatures along with less precipitation will increase the risk of wrinkles in certain areas such as the Great Lakes and the Northeast. Meanwhile, Texan residents, beware of drier skin as cities such as Dallas, Houston and San Antonio will see the greatest decrease in average annual precipitation.

Two RoC® products in particular are ones we all should use: Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum and Retinol Correxion Eye Cream. I’m sure I’ve told you (over and over) that serums and eye creams are my favorite skincare products so it’s no surprise that I would recommend these RoC® essentials. #gotitfree

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum and Eye Cream

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum and Eye Cream

These two are staples in my life and as a RoC® ambassador I’m lucky enough to receive enough to keep me stocked. RoC® Deep Wrinkle Serum is a complement to your skin’s renewal process and is clinically proven to visibly reduce fine lines and deep wrinkles.

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum

While I’m not wrinkly yet I do have fine lines that I need to keep under control. This serum is very light and silky; it contains magnesium, zinc and copper along with RoC’s retinol.

RoC® Retinol Correxion Eye Cream

RoC® Retinol Correxion Eye Cream

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum is a product I fall back on whenever I feel my under eye area needs help. It works on puffiness which is one of my biggest problems. In addition as you continue to use this you’ll notice a change in your crow’s feet, dark circles, and fine lines. People notice your eyes before anything else so this is an important method of keeping your eyes looking their best.

 RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum with Coordinates bracelet

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum with Coordinates bracelet

Now let me tell you about this amazing bracelet that RoC® sent along from Coordinates. Each bracelet is custom made with the coordinates of where you live. I forgot to take a picture of the inside but my city is engraved in it as well as the the global numbers of my exact area.

#ITsAtSephora and we’re so excited

IT Cosmetics at Sephora

IT Cosmetics at Sephora

IT Cosmetics has arrived at our favorite cosmetic store – Sephora. There’s been a long journey for Jamie Kern Lima, the magician behind IT Cosmetics. I remember buying my first product from them and realizing that this was a line that I could get excited about. Now, years and years later, that realization has come true and I’m a big fan of the line.                               press sample

Lisa and I were each sent a box with the products that are exclusive to Sephora. We’re excited to teach you about them and have a giveaway in Lisa’s article. I told her to pick what she wanted to write about and I’d do the rest. Well I think she gave me a hint about what she thinks of me since everything she told me to review are anti-aging products. How dare she?? I’m actually so grateful since I put 4 items to work and my initial experiences with them are worth any insult she might have made.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Serum

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Serum

BYE BYE LINES SERUM  aka Advanced Anti-Aging Wrinkle-Smoothing Miracle Concentrate ($58 for 1 fl oz/30 ml) is terrific for me. I’m all about two things, serums and eye creams, so this new product from IT Cosmetics is what I’d choose in a second. This is a powerful serum though it feels gentle on my skin. It’s absolutely loaded with goodies: anti-aging peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, caviar extract, sea water, argan oil, babassu oil and vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B5, B7, B9 and CoQ10. Wow, talk about hydration and improving the skin barrier. Clinical studies are off the wall with how great testers found this serum and I’m right there with them. Use it morning, night, or both for incredible moisturization. It has the most luscious orange fragrance to top it off and anything that will help prevent and blur my fine lines is on my A-list.

IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour

IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour

At my age I love that I can use a product with the word armour in it. IT COSMETICS ANTI-AGING ARMOUR “Super Smart Skin-Perfecting Beauty Fluid” ($38 1 fl oz) asked for me to pick it. This beauty fluid contains SPF50+. It is a hydrating sunscreen that brightens, protects, and repairs. It has color-correcting pigments to even out the appearance of skin tones. Shake the bottle first to mix ingredients and you’ll find a light beige fluid. I’m very fair so it does do color correcting for me but if I had darker than medium skin I’d want to check it out at Sephora personally to make sure the color worked. I’ve mixed it with a foundation that is too light for me and it upped the color level. Anti-aging Armour has everything I want within: peptides, niacin, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants. What more could this “old” lady want?

Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

And here we are – another love of mine. The fact that IT Cosmetics at last has an eye cream has convinced me that I will for sure be a customer for life. BYE BYE UNDER EYE EYE CREAM ($48 0.5 fl oz/15 ml) – this phenomenon is made to Smooth, Brighten and Depuff. It contains ingredients to help it do that: anti-aging copper, blue algae, caffeine, vitamin C, collagen, cucumber extract, and peptides. The caffeine makes an instant difference with my puffiness and dark circles. My undereye area feels very soft and hydrated. The eye cream even looks refreshing with its light blue shade. It doesn’t interfere with my concealer so it’s a go day and night.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush #7-2

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush #702

IT Cosmetics has always been known for their incredible brushes. This cruelty-free company creates amazing brushes that will make you want to toss others. Along comes this HEAVENLY SKIN CC+ SKIN-PERFECTING BRUSH, No. 702 ($48) to blow me out of the water. While this looks like another fabulous brush from IT, it’s actually a groundbreaker. It has skincare infused brush hair.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush #702

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush #702

The fibers on this brush are infused with anti-aging collagen, silk, peptides, niacin, and antioxidants. This is so unique. It’s a perfect brush for skincare and color products. Can’t you almost feel the softness of the brush? It’s been created to optically blur and perfect skin by erasing the appearance of lines, pores and imperfections instantly. I’m using this for my skincare but I want another for my cosmetics now.

As you can see, I’m very impressed with the new inroads that IT COSMETICS has made. I’m kidding about the anti-aging part because I really believe that the sooner you start with anti-aging products of this quality, the better off you’ll be for it in the future. All 4 of these products are exclusive to Sephora so I’m recommending that if you don’t buy now that you put these on your wishlist for the holidays or when Sephora has their yearly discount. Which one tops your list?  —  Marcia

Three must-have products to exfoliate and moisturize from Phytomer

Three must-haves from Phytomer

Three must-haves from Phytomer

We all want radiant, glowy skin and in order to get it there are two basic steps:

  1.  Exfoliate!
  2. Moisturize!

Today I have three must-have products that exfoliate and moisturize and are perfect for those with very sensitive skin. They come from Phytomer, a fantastic high end line that is a favorite of mine. The products truly deliver, all while also making me feel spoiled and pampered. They are on the spendy side, but they are all worth every penny.                                                            samples

Phytomer Purifying Gommage Exfoliant

  1.  Purifying Gommage Exfoliant  ($41.50)  ‘Gommage’ means ‘eraser’ in French, and this awesome exfoliant erases dead skin and anything that might be blogging your pores and preventing your skin care from operating at full force. The tiny particles that scrub away the bad stuff include micro algae and kaolin that attach to dead skin so it can be washed away. It’s applied to clean, dry skin in a thin layer. After about five minutes, rub it in circular motions, moving those particles around and lifting off the dead skin. It sort of rolls up into little balls that fall into the sink. Once most of the exfoliator is gone, use your regular cleanser or even just warm water to wash off.  Do this a few times a week and you will be astounded at how great skin looks and feels. This really is an amazing decongestant for skin and is super gentle. Everyone raves about it for a reason – it’s incredible.  Phytomer Youth Contour Smoothing Eye and Lip Cream
  2. Youth Contour Smoothing Eye and Lip Cream ($81.50) I adore multi-tasking products, and this beautiful light cream works wonders on the delicate skin under eyes and around lips. It addresses three major skin issues: wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. It has really cool ingredients that are a superhero trio for the eyes and lips. Dilsea Carnosa red algae extract actually reinforces the skin’s support tissue from within, reducing the depth of wrinkles and fine lines. Chlorella Vulgaris green algae extract soothes skin and reduces puffiness, and Delesseria Sanguinea red algae extract increases circulation and reduces dark circles.Phytomer Decollete Parfait Neck and Decollete Renewing Care
  3. Decollete Parfait ($95.50)  The best skin care advice ever: don’t forget your neck!! I love, love, love the Phytomer Decollete Parfait. This beautiful soft cream sort of ‘irons out’ skin on the neck and chest, immediately making it smoother and softer. It has a bit of illumination in it, which evens out tone and gives a beautiful appearance. Over time, the Brightening Marine Complex lightens dark spots so this is immediate gratification with long term results.

I can’t recommend these three favorites from Phytomer highly enough. If you want to get a beautiful glow, try these for perfect exfoliation and moisturization. You won’t be disappointed.  – Lisa

Best skin care trends for back to school

Best skin care trends for back to school

I can’t believe all the terrific beauty products on sale at Meijer next week for their Fall Beauty Week – everything needed to take care of yourself from tips to toes. Here are some of my skin care picks, including an awesome tote bag set to carry all those goodies!                                                                 samples

Modella 9 Piece Tote Set

Modella 9 Piece Tote Set

I am loving this tote bag set! The Modella 9 Piece Tote Set is a great bargain to begin with, and an even better bargain during Fall Beauty Week. The bags are waterproof and easy to clean, and there’s a size for every possible need you might have.

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water

If you haven’t tried Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water yet, now is your chance. It’s an excellent cleanser especially for those nights when all you want to do is fall into bed. You won’t skip washing your face when all it takes is a cotton pad – the Micellar Cleansing Water attracts dirt and oil, so no water or scrubbing is necessary.

derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Creme

If you have very dry skin and want something that moisturizes and treats wrinkles, definitely try the derma e Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A Retinyl Palmitate Creme. Retinyl Palmitate is pure Vitamin A, one of the best antioxidants available. Be sure to use a spatula so you don’t accidentally contaminate the moisturizer, and pick up some of awesome derma e products in the sample packs if you can. They are perfect for travel or to keep at your desk – just use a pin to prick a hole in the sample pack which helps the product last and keeps it from spilling out.

Olay Eye Cream and Aveeno Absolutely Ageless moisturizers A few more skin care recommendations that you can find on sale next week at the Meijer Fall Beauty Week:  for eyes, check out the Olay Eye Lifting Serum. It has cutting edge ingredients including fantastic antioxidants and peptides and I think it’s one of the best drugstore eye serums available. Two other favorites are from Aveeno’s Absolutely Ageless line. The Daily Moisturizer has excellent broad spectrum sun protection, improves skin texture and tone, and is a great moisturizer for those with combination to oily skin. The Restorative Night Cream is another winner, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles while also firming and toning skin. Great stuff!

Get your shopping list ready – Meijer’s Fall Beauty Week starts September 11th.  – Lisa

Not just for pregnant women: Belli Eye Brightening Cream

BelliConsidering I am a little beyond the time in my life for pregnancy (whenever my 12-year-old asks for a baby brother or sister, my answer is an emphatic ‘That ship has SAILED!”), I tend to forget that there are so many women with questions concerning skin care that is safe during pregnancy. Belli Skin Care has lots of great products that are pregnancy safe, and one of my favorites is the Eye Brightening Cream ($39).                                                                                                              sample

Belli Eye Brightening CreamBelli screens their ingredients to make sure none have been linked in any way to birth defects or miscarriages. Not only that, all products only have ingredients that have been proven to be safe while nursing, and they are all free of parabens, BPA, phthalates, and artificial dyes.

The Eye Brightening Cream is a stand out for two reasons: one, it has exceptional ingredients in excellent packaging, and two, it gives immediate gratification along with long-term results.

Belli Eye Brightening CreamBelli Eye Brightening Cream has vitamin K, which is awesome for brightening dark areas and reducing redness, and vitamin B3, which improves elasticity, fades discoloration, and reduces wrinkles. This eye cream has a cooling feeling when applied and it reduces puffiness…and if you are going to have kids, or already have them, puffiness is an ongoing issue!

Continued use of Belli Eye Brightening Cream will definitely make a difference under your eyes, and I love that it immediately brightens as well. There are teeny tiny shimmers in the cream that give a glow right away, which not only brightens my face but also brightens my day.

Belli Eye Brightening CreamBelli Eye Brightening Cream and other Belli products aren’t just for pregnancy, although they certainly are great and one less thing you need to worry about. Anyone can use these products at any time because Belli is an excellent skin care line that really pays attention to the importance of healthy, good for you ingredients. Check them out at www.belliskincare.com .  – Lisa
